Vice President Yemi Osinbajo says ministers are expected to present
their first performance reports in December but did not disclose if
the reports will be made public.
He also did not state if ministers with sub-par performance would be
asked to go.
Osinbajo stated this in Abuja on Monday while declaring open the 2019
Annual Management Conference of the Nigerian Institute of Management
themed, ‘Managing the Challenges of Democracy’.
“Let me speak quickly to what will be done differently on the
implementation of government plans in this dispensation. After the
presidential policy dialogue preceding the inauguration of ministers,
the president developed a list of specific mandates for each ministry.
“Each of those mandates has clearly spelt out action points,” the vice
He, therefore, added, “Every minister has a mandate with action
points, some of the mandates have seven or eight points. The ministers
are to render their first reports on performance in December.
“So, in some sense, we are moving to a more measurable way of
determining where ministers are going and what they ought to do. Of
course, there would be challenges of funding, clarity of plans etc.”
